When a new Android Operating System update is announced by Google there are a few steps that take place before it becomes ready for your device. The manufacturer receives the update and customises the software for the device and mobile carriers in each country. Once this is completed they’ll send the update to the carriers for testing.

 

For more info on this process check out our page:

 

Android Device Updates - What's The Process?

 

The below table provides information on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of  21/02/2018. If no information is listed, it means we haven't received the build or any new details from the manufacturer.

 

When a version is marked as completed it means testing has been finished on our end and approved.  Each manufacturer has a process for releasing updates to devices and once we approve the update, it’s sent back to the manufacturer to be released through their standard update processes. Generally, updates are rolled out progressively, for example the manufacturers might make the update available for a small number of users (i.e. 5%) initially; then if no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll gradually be made available to more and more users over the following weeks.

Hey @Fanglestein,

what model is your phone, because if its the Mate 9 you shouldn't be waiting to much longer because I have just received the update

It is the Mate 9 but someone told me that my build represent the Taiwan model and they don't have updates and may not get them.

 

I bought it in Australia from DWI as they were an affordable price. Quite a few people told me the Taiwanese models would not get an update and I hope thye are wrong as Orea sounds like fun to play with (heheheheh)
